For the second part of this week's exploration of new and upcoming releases, we Focus. As in... we compare and contrast the music from that iconic 'saxophone & strings' album by Stan Getz with the two more recent CDs—both entitled Re Focus—by Tim Garland and Sylvain Rifflet which Getz's 1961 masterpiece inspired. The latter was orchestrated by the great French bassist and arranger Fred Pallem who is about to release a fascinating project dedicated to fairy tales in the key of jazz, which sounds... fabulous, of course, just like the prohibition era fairy tales narrated by another bassist (this time on sousaphone) that is writing fundamental new pages in the Chicago jazz book, Matt Ulery [pictured].

This and much more in this edition of Mondo Jazz. Happy listening!
